The walk is over three days and takes in many World War One battlefields and their associated cemeteries. Some of the sights include Lochnagar Crater, the Thiepval memorial, a German & French cemetery, the memorial at Vancouver Corner and the Menin Gate. All the walkers attend the Menin Gate ceremony held at 8pm every evening.
